COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A surprisingly balanced double IPA. A pirate without the use of his eyes is a bitter man indeed. And this Blind Pirate’s bitterness is only matched by his boldness. He doesn’t care if you enjoy the citrusy, spicy combination of hops on your tongue, the faint herbal notes in your nose, or the exquisite balance of caramel malts looting your senses. The Blind Pirate is a bold, bitter ale not for the weak in spirit. Just don’t ask him if you can borrow his sight glass. He gets offended.

Draft pour at the tasting room. 6 oz. Nice golden amber with a thick head. Pine, citrus, grass, hay and cereal aroma. The taste was pine and resin with some citrus and biscuit. Nice finish with some bitterness and herbs. Well balanced. Good from this new brewery.

Itzjerm (1140) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Not a West Coast IPA. Very very malty. Slight bitterness with a strong malt backbone. Aroma is the most disappointing part of this beer. Mouthfeel is medium body for a double IPA. Average to Below-Average East Coast IPA. Way below-average West Coast IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jkwood04 (3744) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 11, 2014
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of lightly citrusy and piney hops, caramel and pale malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with a lot of malts. Average to smoother texture. Not a terrible beer, but could be way better.
